The year is 1980 and 34-year-old Donald Trump sits on a couch with Rona Barrett. He tells her America needs to be a country that is respected. 

A sentiment he promises will happen 38 years later when he is the 45th President of the United States. A promise he has kept. 

"Is respect the most important thing in your opinion?" Barrett asks.

"Well, respect can lead to other things," Trump answered. "When you get the respect from other countries, then the countries tend to do a little bit as you do."

Most politicians' policies change dramatically when they hold office; Trump's ideologies have stayed on the same path for over three decades, as seen in this video.

Some say he's too unpredictable. But if watching this video should prove anything, it's that Trump's views on changing the world have been steadfast.
